Red & Orange Poppies

June 17, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Hi Everyone,

Here are the 2 poppy pictures that I promised you last week.  They are very different aren't they?  I'm not sure I know which one I like best.  Leave a comment, here, and let me know which one you like.

Now, I am looking for a white Calypso Orchid which my friend found on one of the trails in RMNP.  I went there last Tuesday but went the wrong way on the trail.  This trail has many options for hiking and of course I took the wrong one.  I am going to go again next week and hopefully I'll find them.  

The opening reception that I told you about last week in this blog went really well.  There were a lot of people that came to look at all the wonderful photography that was displayed.  I didn't get a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place nor an honorable mention but I was just thrilled to have my photo hanging with all the others done by very talented photographers.  

I wish you a wonderful weekend and a Happy Father's Day to all fathers out there...Diane

 

Red PoppyRed PoppyA red poppy on a green background filled with a lot of bokeh. Poppies are a flowering plant in the subfamily Papaveroideae of the Papaveraceae. They are herbaceous plants, often grown for their colorful flowers. One species of poppy, Palaver somniferous, is the source of the crude drug opium which contains powerful medicinal alkaloids such as morphine and has been used since ancient times as an analgesic and narcotic medicinal and recreational drugs. It also produces edible seeds. Poppies have become a symbol of remembrance of soldiers who have died during wartime.
